If you’re looking for the best trail running shoes on the market, there’s no better option than Speedland. Founded by a pair of fans with over two decades at the world’s largest footwear brands–we’re talking Nike, Puma, Under Armour, and the like–everything that comes out of Speedland is equal parts functional work of art and testament to the craft of footwear. Case in point, the Speedland x Michelin SL:PDX Trail Shoe. At first glance, it looks like a low-top version of a snowboarding bootie with bright colors, external stitching, and Boa closures. If you’ve ever dropped in to some powder with that particular kind of setup on a board, you know that is a badge of honor. But it only gets better from there. That design is paired with a Michelin outsole (aka the chassis) built with a thin, sidewall rubber–just like tires–and trimmable lugs for maximum performance. Plus you get optional cuttable drainage ports for water runs, and a Dyneema Knit, Carbitex carbon plat, Pebax SCF midsole, and the previously mentioned BOA Li2 Fit System with dual-dial, multidirectional incremental adjustments. In other words, this is the most advanced, most customizable, and most comfortable pair of trail running shoes that have ever been released.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
